The Tariffaud Ihc Slate Register. 

For Weeks past tho column, of the Register hnvo loomed .villi cdiloriala. denouncing 
tho Tariff oel of Iho Ioio Congress, aid with al lensl I 

r.ding before Iho publie, all Iho items in thai net upon which a duty hod been let ted. 
Wo thought il 10 bo our duly to notice these articles, and in our last paper wo slated 
that the ,vl„gs passed that act, because il b.camo accessary to suslam Iho bono, and 
credit of Iho government, -to pay .Is dobls and to supply il with Iho means of paymg 
it. ordinary oxponsos.-which expenses had been roducod by the whigs down 10 suite.. 
»■«.-.». of dollars for lie, ear.-oxs half Iho amount expended under the adminis- 
tration of Mr. Van Buren i and that in laying tins Tariff, Iho whigs havo sod.serio... 
nsled as to protect Iho domestic industry of the country. 

We also slntod that ia warring against Iho Tariff acl, passed by Iho whiga, the Re- 
gister and the Clique wore warring against the great men of Iho 'democratic' party,— 
ngainsl Jackson, Van Buren, Johnson, Wright, Buchanan, Benton and others, who have 
all voled for higher Tariffs ll.on that passed by Iho whigs ; and Hint Ibis course of Iho 
Regisler was dictated by hostility to Mr. VnnF 



Th« editors of llic Rector il. their paper ol la-'. wi-cii. in reply, say that Ihoy 
opposed to "the lolo Tariff act, because il robs Illinois," and lhal Ihoy go for the " 
teres! of our own Slalo." This, wo are sorry to soy, is dodging Iho question, i 
playing the demagogue. How does il "rob Illinois"! Does it operate moro uuequt

II will bo seen from this lablo lhat Iho Tariff of 1SS8 is the highest of Iho four.and 
lhal of 1842, Iho <o«*<l. Look, for inslance, at Ihe duty on Woolens, on Ir 
Salt, on Sugar— and all these lar.ffe levy a duly on Tea and Coffee except the wh 
nir -I 1M2. which admits these articles of every day consumption duly free! 
Tariff of 1842, is Ihe lowest of the four. Why, then, does Iho Register call 
"high pressure Tariff!" Did Iho editors of that paper uso this lorm becaus 
thought il well adapted to address the prejudice „,... i t , )w „i„i, : of their readers) 

But the Register pays : 

substance, and now repeat, lhat in warring against tho Tariff, the Rogislor wns w 
ngainsl iho great men of its own parly, who had volcd for Iho higher Tariffs of 
and 1828,— much highor Tariffs ihon thai passed by iho whigs in 1842. Tho issuo thus 
formed between us is easily solilod. Wo will refer Iho Register and ils readers to 
Document 244 of second session of 27th Congress, pogo 140, whore will bo fou 
yeas and nays upon Iho Tariffed of 1824, which passed Iho Scnnlo by Iho following 
vole ; and amongst Ihe ye.s will be found Ihe nnmoi of Martin Van Buren, Richard 
M. Johnson, John H. Eaton, Andrew Jachson and Thomas H. Bsnton.

11 is possible thai Iho editors of Iho Regislor may be unnblo lo procure II 
bovo roforrod lo, we will therefore direct lliem lo the pages of ll 
they will find recorded Ihcso yeas and nays. Tho acl of 1824 passed Iho Sonale May 
13lh. See Senate Journal Isl session I81I1 Congress, page 401. That of 1828, passed 
the Senate May 13th. Seo Senate Journal 1st session, 20th Congress, pngodlO. VVo 
hope tho editors of the Register will consult these authorities, and never hereafter 
will, nut blushing, deny the truth of our statement of this matter. 

When we saw the editors of the K-hi-Ilt attacking i lie tariff, and of course all who 
had supported thotnriff.wl.ot inference could lie fairly 'drawn but lhat they were 
attacking Mr. Van Buren, who hod voled for the highest Tariff ever passed! What
